Editorial Reviews

Review

Written in this remarkable book is how one, in our technological and tax paying society, can rediscover a method of getting in contact with the spirits of the beginning; what Native Americans called `The Unseen.' The way the author found her ability to conscious dreaming and mastering her dreams is astonishing. She shows the reader a road to reach the final total of one's own Self. In this manner one discovers that he himself or she herself is a creator of two separate realities, the boundless unknown of dreaming and creativity and the reality of the material world. -- Dick de Soeten Author of: When the tortoise dies, The epic of the Iroquois Confederacy

The Sorcerer's Dream is full of wonderful perspective changes between urban existence, the dream world, the burgeoning love, the distant teacher Vidar and the impulsive and independent Dreamshield. The journey to the second reality is exciting, challenging and confrontational. -- Weed Magazine (Dutch Magazine)

In The Sorcerer's Dream the author describes her learningproces from mastering dreams, the contact with her totem or power animals, the travel between the realities and finding the ultimate knowledge. - MSc. O. Bachnoe -- Msc. O. Bachnoe, Library service, The Netherlands

It was a wonderful trip, written as one long dream, I actually wanted to read the book without interruption, instead of in parts. -- Carmen Xanjust, Foundation In Between (for Cleargreen USA)

Braceau is not just some naive dabbler who stumbled on shamanism during a quickie retreat. The double role of telling a good yarn and telling the reader how to make a good yarn of his/her own is part of this literary tradition. Joseph Campbell would have been proud. --Paula R. Stiles, Innsmouth Free Press

Dreamshield has an engaging narrative style and tells stories that are engrossing. There is a lack of literature on female sorcerers and this book makes an admirable effort to fill this lacuna. When, at the end, she attains "totality," the reader will share her exaltation. --Anthropology of Consciousness and Association for Humanistic Psychology-Perspective, Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. Alan Watts Profess of Psychology, Saybrook University.

From the Author

About this first publication the author says: The theme of these passed four-and-a-half years have been the sorcerers tradition. "I have carefully recorded my personal experiences which has finally led to this book. Apart from that, writing it has given me great pleasure. The Sorcerer's Dream has become more than a personal account because the interested reader is presented with the technique to learn and practice the North American tradition of the Art of Dreaming (the skill of conscious dreaming) him/herself."

This book isn't exactly what I thought it was going to be, but it was a great tale. I think I was expecting more of a direct approach to conscious dreaming. What it is though, is a memoir if you will, of Alysa's own experience as she learns the Native American techniques to conscious dreaming. It follows Alysa's teachings with the help of her guide and mentor, Running Bear.

Her experiences as she learns Shamanism is incredible. From her first dream to reaching the second reality, it was amazing to realize the actual meanings behind her dreams. The course of recognizing and facing your fears, some of which you don't even realize you have. Alysa did a great job explaining her journey and it's a great guide to follow to recognizing the meaning behind your own dreams.

The journey doesn't stop at lucid dreaming, but also includes spiritual healing as well. If you are interested in conscious dreaming and the road traveled to reach totality, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

I give The Sorcerer's Dream **** (4) Stars. Well done Alysa.

In a mother and daughter journey, the spiritual meets the natural in this wonderful book. Filled with spiritual concepts, ghosts, mediums, and dreams...you will contemplate your consciousness long after reading the book.

Told in fiction form, there are many truths embedded, as with many myths passed down to us.

The reader will find him or herself searching the pages for the depth of answers awaiting. Rich characters, and real truths await.

Hard to put down, I found this book kept me turning pages constantly, keeping me engaged as I looked for what the mother and daughter sought.

A great gift for Christmas or any evetn.

I love people getting the word out on how to be spirit. Break the material mold, stand on the abyss and leap. Live the dream.

I very much liked the idea of this book but I'm afraid it's all been done before, and better by Casteneda and Lynn Andrews. Its the story of mentor/student in the arts of shamanism. Although at first it held my interest, I found the rest was just same same and I put it aside. Also it is a very bad translation, many grammatical errors.

I am about finish with this book, with all honesty is way to confusing to even follow it. She is either dreaming awake or while she sleeps. I thought it would be a book about dreams, but it is a pretty advanced whole lot of wild stuff.
It does not help with Shamanic Journeys or if you are learing about Shamanism. Too confusing.....
